Read only for AdventureWorks LT

description

I am trying to learn more about SQL Server 5 Express, so I thought I would load up one of the sample databases. I currently run Windows Vista and when I went to install the database or attach it, I kept getting an error about the files being read only. I tried to change the attribute of the file using my current profile which is a Domain Admin, however that wouldn't work. Then I changed profiles and went in as local Administrator, and I was able to take off the read only on the files.
 
However, when I managed to attach the database, it still says Read Only in the "SQL Server Management Studio Express". Now, should it be saying that?
I can view the tables and do some Query's but I probably don't have full access to the database. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
